Amanda Maddox said her background in broadcast journalism lends itself well to her position as deputy press secretary for Rep. Nan Hayworth.
Additionally, her specialized background in broadcast journalism has come in handy when dealing with new media and television appearances. “I go to the studios, and I know what looks good and what doesn’t,” she said.
Maddox plans to go to graduate school in the near future to study communications. At the same time, she wants to keep gaining experience in political communications and hopes to become a press secretary or communications director.
And she now has a new dream job.
“I want to work for the White House,” she said. “I would love to be their social secretary.”
